Welcome to Our School
At Seishu Junior High School our philosophy is to enrich students’ minds and promote a sense of independence. We believe that providing an open environment to study and consult with teachers is beneficial for not only education, but also confidence and self-motivation.
We pride ourselves on providing a premier English education to girls during each of the six years they spend with us, which encompasses both junior and senior high school. Our school puts a focus on providing each student with the tools they need to grow their understanding of the English language, through study as well as genuine enjoyment.
Being able to access teachers outside the classroom is key to ensuring that our students can foster their individual interest in English by practicing it as a pastime.
At Seishu we strive to teach our students that English isn’t just a subject, but a key to communicating with people all across the world. Students are often found chatting with our native teachers outside class hours independently.
Junior high school students have four to five classes with native teachers a week between two teachers and two ALTs from the JET Programme. Students have the chance to see native English speakers interact in the classroom every day. We believe that this environment provides a simulation of real-world English immersion.
In the classroom, students engage with English in a variety of ways to stimulate their interest, enjoyment and learning. Students also play games, produce and perform skits, roleplay conversation and prepare for events on the Seishu calendar.
One such event is the English Expo which is like a mini school festival presented entirely in English. Students give speeches, presentations and perform skits, plays and songs. Students are also able to showcase what they have learned to parents and visitors to our school.
In the first grade of high school, students take a trip to Canada for two weeks. During this time students attend classes at a Canadian high school and take part in a homestay experience. Students have many opportunities to engage with local culture and history by using the English skills they have built up at Seishu. Students not only participate in Canadian culture and lifestyle, but they are encouraged to exchange Japanese culture with their homestay family and Canadian peers through Cultural Sharing.
We hope that you join us in creating an environment where students can succeed with English.
